Bridge Over Trouble Water

When youíre weary, feeling small,
When tears are in your eyes, I will dry them all;
Iím on your side. When times get rough
And friends just canít be found,
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

When youíre down and out,
When youíre on the street,
When evening falls so hard
I will comfort you.
Iíll take your part.
When darkness comes
And pain is all around,
Like a bridge over troubled water 
I will lay me down.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will lay me down.

Sail on silvergirl,
Sail on by.
Your time has come to shine.
All your dreams are on their way.
See how they shine
If you need a friend
Iím sailing right behind.

Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.
Like a bridge over troubled water
I will ease your mind.
